    Gosh, I thought the zipper marks disappeared after half an hour or so.

    The House of Cards plot starts to re-appear somewhere in my brain. The main character was one really evil bastard, wasn't he? No, I didn't see the Edge of Darkness, but I'll do a search. I do have 33 DVD's right next to me here though: all episodes of Inspector Morse. I watch an episode whenever the real world becomes too much. Haven't seen the last one yet.

    Kungshamn, Sweden. Eight vertical shots stitched. D3, 2/35 mm AF Nikkor.
    For somewhat better quality, try this: http://forum.getdpi.com/gallery/file...kungshpano.jpg

    Great series the Inspector Morse, I've got the complete set too. I watch them slowly, savoring the moments, my wife falls asleep though The books are of course excellent too.

    Nice photo from Kungshamn. Did you do any of Smögen as well? You seem to have been travelling around in Bohuslän recently. By boat or by car? I used to go there by boat for something like 15 years.

    We go there by car. Mostly we stay in Trollhättan (Of SAAB cars fame) at Alberts Kök ock Konferens, where they have the best food for miles around and where I can usually dig out some exiting wine from the cellar that's not on the menu

    I'll post some shots from Smøgen later. We always return by Smøgen to pick up some seafood from Göstas. Btw. you think this is getting slightly OT now

    In all the excitement of newly announced cameras, let's not forget the excellent quality of the D2x. Here are a couple of shots with the 85mm TS Micro Nikkor.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    You know, one of the sample images that Nikon posted with the D700 was taken with the 24mm TS Micro Nikkor and that picture was horrible. Couldn't tell if it was an actual scene or a photo of a miniature.

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    That's done on purpose. There is a special type of post processing you can apply to make something look as if it is a minature, when it was taken in real life. It involves using either a tilt shift lens or post processing technique to blur the top and bottom, making it look as it was taken up close. Add to that some contrast and edge sharpening effects and it winds up looking like a model, as opposed to a real photo. It's all the rage now. I would not dismiss the D700 or the 24mm TS on the account of it...it is a particular technique that is making it look that way.

    By the way, I am almost certain that that photo was taken in Sapporo, from Maruyama. I used to live there...beautiful city. That was the Nakajima park...I can tell by the funky white and purple western building and the concert hall in the background.

    I will file that technique away with body piercing, facial tattoos and sky surfing: artistically interesting, but something I would never do.

    Jorgen,

    I really like this last image of the raised metro. Nice framing and good placing of your watermark!

    Jorgen,
    I love the Bangkok photo featuring the Udvang building. The framing is fantastic. You are sure making that D80 sing.
    Any idea when you will be getting the S5? I'm anxious to see how you like it.

    Jono,
    Why did you have to start posting images like this with that lens? Wowsa! Now wouldn't that lens be a nice kit on the D700?

    Re: Fun Pictures with Nikon

    Thanks a lot Cindy. The S5 is still 10 days or so away. The shop is in a part of Bangkok that I don't visit very often, but I have fun while I'm waiting too

    Jono, that 25mm looks like a cool lens, in spite of what people say about it. I like the book shot, and it gave me some ideas. How close does it focus?

    HI Jorgen - officially 17cm, but from the front element it's around 2 inches.
    Very Close.
    Cindy - You'll need something like this on your new D700 now, won't you?

    Thank you Jorgen . . . . but it's boring flat(ish) arable land. Home though (until I can persuade the boss to move to Cornwall!).

    That's a beautiful shot Jono. I'm a sucker for arable land.

    And since I've just taken a break from cutting one of my fields that's on the side of a hill, flat sounds pretty appealing tom me!

    You just be careful on that tractor

    these were taken with the D3 and the Nikkor 14-24 f2.8 zoom (just to confuse Cindy )

    It is easy to confuse me...just ask my husband.
    These are both beautiful, Jono, but I especially like the second one.

    Jono, your shot of the tree & clouds takes my breath away! That one's stunning. (Consider that I don't offer many compliments on other people's photography very often, either....)

    Lisa, Jorgen and Arne
    thank you so much for the kind words, it's really welcome because, when we first moved here I thought it impossible to photograph.

    Cindy - isn't that cheapo 70-300 a great lens - I like the second shot as well, a bit of highlight recovery might bring back some detail in the white flowers?

    Just this guy you know

    Cindy, that second one is a beauty

    Jono, there is arable land in Thailand too, lots of it, but if these guys have it their way, I wonder for how long

    Florida Keys

    From a recent trip to the Keys... Couldn't bring my MF kit with me but I think the D3 more than held it's own.

    Both photos are stunning! The first one keeps drawing me back for another look.

    Wow, the Florida Keys and the D3...that is close to heaven!
